Candidate Statements

 

THOMAS ACHTOR

 

I am an Assistant Researcher and the Executive Director-Science at the Space Science andEngineering Center. I have worked at the UW-Madison as a research scientist and in research center administration for over 20 years. I work with principal investigators and research staff to plan, coordinate and implement scientific research programs. I provide support to our research infrastructure by helping to locate, hire, and retain skilled individuals for our research teams, recruit talented graduate students, develop and insure computing facilities, manage physical space, and interact with Graduate School and SSEC administration.

 

I have served on this committee for the past three years. As a supervisor of over 50 academic staff members, I am interested in a broad range of issues, including competitive salary and benefits, equity, job security and improving our ability to recruit talented staff. I maintain a strong rapport with our academic staff and will continue to bring issues of importance and concern to this committee.

  

 

SUSAN CROWLEY

 

I am the Director of Prevention Services and Community Relations for University Health Services, a position I have held for the past four years. I came to the university following a 21-year career in local government, which included numerous management positions. In my last position with DaneCounty, I was the Director of Dane County Human Services, the largest department in county government.

 

It is very important that academic staff advocate effectively on behalf of their own interests. AtDane County, I was successful in advocating with both the Dane County Executive and CountyBoard to return senior management staff in human services to civil service status. This request followed 12 years of contract employment that did not afford these managers the same level of pay adjustments as other county management positions.

 

Health insurance, domestic partner benefits, as well as appropriate compensation for academic staff become critical issues in staff recruitment, retention and job satisfaction, particularly in challenging economic times. I have significant public policy experience, specifically in the articulation of issues and the analysis and development of viable options for consideration.

 

I welcome the opportunity to serve on the CEBC. If elected, I will bring a fresh, but experienced, perspective to these important academic staff issues.   

 

JIM PAVELKO

 

I am the Assistant Dean for Financial Management in the School of Business. My first term on the Compensation and Economic Benefits Committee is ending on June 30, 2004 and I would like to continue to serve on the committee for another three-year term.  Some CEBC highlights during the past three years include: 

 

  • CEBC increasing the academic staff required layoff notice period to provide additional time for employees to consider options and hopefully continue UW employment without a break in service; 

 

  • CEBC is reviewing academic staff pay equity and is working on two new processes in this area. First, we implemented an annual campus Promotional Report, which the Academic Personnel Office is sending to divisions requiring them to review staff with enough years of service and consider them for promotion. Secondly, CEBC is working with the Academic Personnel Office on an informational brochure to send to all academic staff explaining the promotion and base adjustment process and providing helpful links for additional information.

I am active in academic staff governance. I am currently the Treasurer of the Madison Academic Staff Association and served as MASA President in 01-02. I was a district representative for four years in district 484, and currently I am the alternate district representative for district 489. I am also a member of the School of Business Committee on Academic Staff Issues. 

 

I welcome the opportunity to continue to serve on the Compensation and Economic Benefits Committee for another three-year term.

 

MEREDITH ROSS

 

I am a Clinical Professor at the UW Law School, where I am Director of the Frank J. RemingtonCenter. The Remington Center is a large clinical program in which over a hundred law students, working under the supervision of clinical faculty, assist real clients with a variety of civil and criminal legal problems. I have been a full-time member of the Law School’s clinical faculty since earning my J.D. here in 1990; prior to that, I worked part-time as a lecturer in the UW-Madison’s English Department, where I earned a Ph.D. in 1985.  

 

I believe that I am well qualified to address issues affecting the academic staff, for several reasons. As Director of the Remington Center, I supervise the work of 17 academic staff members. Moreover, having worked in two very different departments, I have a good sense of the variety of ways in which academic staff members serve the University Community. Finally, my service on a number of Law School committees has made me well acquainted with a wide range of issues affecting academic staff. In the mid-1990s, I served on the Law School’s Gender Race Equity Review Committee; and, more recently, on the Law School’s Committee on Academic Staff Issues (CASI). As an elected member of the Law School’s Academic Planning Committee, I co-authored a revision of the Law School rules (which was adopted unanimously by the faculty) to increase the academic staff’s participation in the School’s governance. Currently, as a member of the Skills and Outreach Committee, I am working on revising the rules governing hiring and promotion of the LawSchool’s clinical faculty.
